Daily Mail

A Man for All Seasons is a stark play, sparse in its narrative, sinewy in its writing, which confirms Mr Bolt as a genuine and solid playwright, a force in our awakening theatre.

The cost for 128 pages was a little ridiculous. The book I received was an essay on the background for A Man for All Seaons - not the play. It was certainly not worth $10.49.

A man for all seasons a play about a man Sir Thomas More who stood up for what he believed regardless of what would happen to him.King Henry Vlll had him exeuted but this was a death with a cause. The book gives the reader a sense self-realization.

Sacrificing life for beliefs and values is the theme of the well written play A Man for All Seasons. Sir Thomas Moore makes the decision to go against his will and live in piece or follow his heart and suffer death. King Henry VIII wants a divorce and forces all people to sustain him as the leader of the Church of England. Moore struggles to choose correctly and ultimately opposes all others in his decision. This book wonderfully illustrates how difficult the decision Sir Thomas More must make and how his life is affected by the choice. A Man for All Seasons is an excellent book for everyone with any interests.

I was required to read this book for an AP English summer assignment and it is one of the best plays i've read. It is a play about Sir Thomas More's moral thoughts and feelings about the divorce between King Henry VIII and Queen Catherine. It is a must read for any book lover.

I thought the play was very well written. Although many parts were hard to understand unless you are a good understanding reader. I would recommend this book to any high school english class, so that everyone can partisapate.
